Beethoven's Violin Concerto

My all-time favourite piece of music is Beethoven's Violin Concerto, it even inspired me to have violin lessons in my teens (although I scarcely progressed beyond "The Grand Old Duke of York").

So you will understand why I absolutely HAD to have this rubberstamp when I saw it on one of the TV shopping channels many years ago.

I can't remember the brand - I've just been doing a Google search but have failed to find it, so presumably it's long ago gone out of production. A great pity as I'd love to know if there was an equivalent one featuring Mozart!

I stamped it twice, once in grey then again in black, and die cut elements from the black image to emphasize Beethoven himself and the violin. The sentiment is stamped using the same stamp set and the background paper printed out from an old CD, The best of La Pashe 2012.

I am sharing this with
